Hall of Heroes Comic Con is set for Sep. 9 and this year it has busted out of the Lerner Theatre and spilled onto the streets, including Main Street, the Civic Plaza, Central
Park, and more on the Gateway Mile in Downtown Elkhart.
The free outdoor area will include food trucks, a beer tent, comic and pop culture displays, and an outdoor stage with performers, music, and panels.
The ticketed event inside the Lerner Theatre will host even more pop culture, collectible, comic, and art vendors, as well as access to celebrity photo and autograph opportunities, artist and celebrity panels, as well as two full days of main stage events like the cosplay contest and a live session of Dungeons and Dragons played by guests John Schneider, Katrina Law, artist Charles Urbach, and legendary cosplayer Knightmage.
Celebrity guests this year include John Schneider from Dukes of Hazzard and Smallville,
Kevin Sussman from Big Bang Theory, Seth Gilliam from The Walking Dead and The Wire,
Katrina Law from CW’s Arrow, Svengoolie, and William Katt from The Greatest American Hero.
Other attractions include art, history, and pop culture panels at the Greater Elkhart
Chamber of Commerce, casual and competitive gaming hosted by Secret Door Games at
Servant’s Heart Community Church, an escape room at Vala Marketing, a movie in the park on Saturday evening, and a never-before-seen comic display at the Midwest Museum of American Art.
Tickets can be purchased at the Lerner Box Office or online at hohcomiccon.org.
